Jumbo Loans – Purchase or Refinance (California Only)
All About Jumbo Loans in California
With real estate prices what they are in California, jumbo loans are becoming more and more the way to get into the market or to move up. This has presented some new questions regarding larger loans for home buyers, which we hope to answer below.
Conforming Loans vs. Jumbo Loans
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac only purchase loans that they classify as “conforming”. Conforming loan limits have been set in 2018 as $417,000 for single-family properties. Loans in amounts greater than this are called “jumbo loans,” and loans greater than $1 million, are generally considered “super jumbo loans.” To complicate this matter more, the limits for these loans is dependent on the county where the property is located. And that brings us to the definition of a Jumbo Loan.
What is a Jumbo Loan?
Simply stated it is any mortgage loan amount that is above the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conforming loans limits as determined by the county where your purchase property is located. As an example:
- In Los Angeles, Orange, Santa Barbara and San Francisco Counties, a loan amount above $625,500 is a Jumbo Loan
- San Diego, Ventura, and Monterey Counties have limits ranging between $500,00 and $600,000.
- The standard limit is $417,000 for all other counties in the state.
